On average, how much money would you say you lose track of each month? By that I mean, spend frivolously, a pop here, a bag of chips there, extra couple of bucks for a tip? You know what I am talking about. Check this out- what if you took those couple extra bucks and put them toward a good cause? Now you are probably saying to yourself, "that's impossible." Fret not friends, nothing is impossible when the Traffic Divas are involved. Allow us to introduce you to our newest friends at Dollar Per Month. that's right, DOLLAR!! Think about how many people are on social media....now think about how much money even 10% of those people could raise each month just by donating a dollar, what about two dollars, even three! Pretty amazing, right!
Our friends at DPM have set it up, so YOU can donate as much or as little each month as YOU want! Each month, they take the proceeds and chose three charities to receive the money. The best part of that? Your money gets spread around to help three different fantastic charities each month. Your small donation really goes a LONG way! I know, no you are wondering how they chose the charities, or how they know the charities are to be trusted- each charity chosen has been vetted for actually making a difference in their given field of philanthropy and for having a history of financial responsibility with donor contributions.
It's pretty cool actually- the three charities for the month are showcased on the site where DPM™ members can read about their respective mission statements and goals, view pictures and video. From there, members vote where they would most like to see the monthly pool of money go to. At the end of each month Dollar Per Month™ takes 90% of the received pool and distributes based on voting at 50%, 30% and 20%. In this way no charity loses. 10% is used for paying for site overhead, etc. Just to fill you in on exactly where the money goes!
**Please note that nobody is receiving any income from DPM™ and that the founders currently fund a large percentage of overhead out-of-pocket as the site has yet to break the 10% threshold initially allowed for expenses.
